Listening via Burke, Va., SDR. Some fades as signal swings between S3  and S7.

2252 UTC: OM, with some echo on his mic, talking … trying to choose a song “I don’t want to go out with that one either …”
2253 UTC “In the Summertime” by Mungo Jerry as the OM announces “We’re getting a little pinch of fall here on the island of the leprechauns.”
2256 UTC: “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees
2258 UTC: “Yeah, I’m a believer,” OM says as song ends, chatting, mentions “Patrick here.”
2300 UTC: Signal's fading fast into increasing static as "Sweet Child o' Mine" by GNR starts up ...

Switched to listening via Uniontown, Pa., as Patrick was talking about technical stuff and chatting away with slow music in the background.

2304 UTC: "Anyway, Skunk Hole Radio ... hope you all enjoyed the show."

Thanks for the music, and feel free to eQSL if you want!
